“NEW OWNERS SUGAR BEACH 216 !”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

This condominium has new owners and has been completely renovated. It has a brand new king bed that is deliciously comfortable, new furniture, paint, fixtures, etc... It is just steps from the beach and the location is the best in the building. We watched the sunset right from the lanai in the evening. We rented this unit through VRBO where there are new pictures and reviews on that site. It is VRBO #482467
This is really a little spot of heaven...a gem of a find!

The condo we rented was very clean and had every amenity you might need. The gal at the event desk was very helpful and friendly. The location of the resort is perfect for us because it's not right in the middle of everything else. The beach could be better though...not meant for swimming really. I think the beaches on the other side of the Island near Lanai are the best...white sand and crystal blue water. All in all, very happy with this resort!

My stay at Sugar Beach Resort was incredible. I loved condo #420. I had great views of the ocean, of Kihei, and the island in the distance all from my balcony which I spent a lot of time on. The beach is quiet, fun and pretty with some waves for playing in, yet not to rough. The condo had everything I needed. I enjoyed having the sliders open for fresh air and the a/c would automatically shut off. Each night I could go to sleep and hear the crashing waves, even with the doors shut. I found William very easy to work with and always prompt getting back to me.

Our room, #424, was oceanfront, literally steps from a great beach that was never crowded. Be advised though that you'll need your water shoes to get in the water here. Not very far out, the sand turns to a rocky bottom. The room had beach chairs and towels to use which was very convenient. The condo itself looked like it had recently been renovated. The furniture was comfy and everything that we needed was available in the kitchen (pots/pans, dishes, flatware, coffee maker, bagel toaster, soap for the dishwasher, and a few condiments such as olive oil, salt and pepper, marinade, etc. There was also soap/dryer sheets available for the stacked washer/dryer. The lady downstairs provided us with a grocery store card for Foodland which isn't very far away on S. Kihei Road (very handy as food is a little more expensive than what we're used to). The pool went from 3 ft. to 6 ft. but they also had a kiddle pool and a jacuzzi pool. There is an elevator for the upper floors, but we didn't find it until the second day. We checked in late and had to retrieve our access codes from the lockbox by the door. The Kihei area is a good location for getting to all the areas you'll want to visit. I'd definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Aloha

Thank you for your review of the Sugar Beach Resort and condo 424 which our condo management company manages. We are glad you found the condo comfortable and in possession of a bunch of convenient items. All condos we manage actually must have a list of over 120 items that we think will make the guest feel at home! We hope to see you at the Sugar Beach Resort again in the future!

Sugar Beach Resort is like no other place, as it's location to everything, closeness to the beach (steps away, literally) is like nothing else on the island, including the high end hotels! Best bang for your buck! We have stayed in Unit #327 a few times, and will be back for sure! The owner is in the process of making some updates to the unit, which only enhances what was already a comfortable unit. Owner's daughter, Jo, is fabulous!

The resort is clean, beautiful, and staff all friendly and helpful. Beach is great for morning and evening walks. Gentle waves, and wonderfully warm water! BBQs' on property are great for grilling local steaks, and meeting new friends!

So much to do on Maui...our 8th trip here, and we still find awesome new things to do. This trip we did the Bamboo Forest hike in Hana. This is surreal, and worth the 4 mile round trip hike! Go early before the crowds start. Bring a lunch, or stop in Paia Town for a sack lunch.

Snorkeling mile marker 14 toward Lahaina good for beginners. Beach at Turtle Town for more advanced snorkelers. I'Oa Needle a must. Eat breakfast at Tasty Crust in Waikalua before or after I'Oa Needle; yummy banana pancakes. La Paruesse for snorkeling, and walk back into lava flow to see cute little goats.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: Do your homework! Read other reviews, or be sure and ask owner about recent pictures, and recent upd...

Our condo was oceanfront and it was very clean, nicely decorated and provided all the comforts of home. The grounds are very well maintained. Saw the maintenance crew out early every morning mowing, cleaning the pool, scrubbing the grills, etc. The sounds of the ocean are so relaxing as is the beach itself. The beach is quiet, not crowded & great for walking! Nice sunsets too. As others have mentioned, the condo units vary so be sure to review current pictures when considering your rental. Our rental was very nice. Dina's "Sand Witch" is a good place to stop on the property for a drink or sandwich. It is small and comfortable. The locals are friendly and our bartender was fun. The sandwiches are very fresh and generous in size. The turkey club could actually feed two, it was enormous. The rueben was good too! Kihei is centrally located between both the Lahaina and Wailea areas. Very easy to get around. One of the recommended Italian restaurants in Kihei was Antonio's. Check out their webcite and/or reviews to decide for yourself. We would not hesitate to stay at the Sugar Beach Resort again!

Room Tip: Go for the oceanfront condo!

This condo is a great location, Beach! The particular room we had (308) very dated and well, although clean the bed was hard, the carpets very old just needing some renovation. We did ask for another room, but were told there were none available - pool area very nice and the ladies in the lobby can get you some good deals on outings!

Just ask for a good room when you book - i was told to book directly and we would not have been given '308'...

Room Tip: Call directly ahead of time to get a renovated room!

Aloha,
Thank you for your review of the Sugar Beach Resort. I am glad you enjoyed the beachfront location, but sorry you did not enjoy your specific condo. Our condo management company does not manage unit 308, but I definitely encourage you to look at photos of the condo you will be staying in before you book so you can assure it meets your tastes. We hope to see you at the Sugar Beach Resort again in the future!
